    Crosstrain, XTrain, XT: Call it what you want. Just do it.

    A throwback to Train Like a Mother--or actually, what was left on the cutting-room floor of Train Like a Mother. A space thing--not a content thing. (Good stuff, that crosstraining: we promise!)

Hump Day Giveaway: Best Race Tips

Sarah and I practiced our presentation on how maximize race day enjoyment and performance a few times before the Disneyland Half Marathon. Even though we’ve given variations on it a number of times, we wanted to eliminate the ever-preesnt “ums” and the “ahs” and have our back-and-forth delivery down pat. (I made us practice after I read in the New Yorker that Bruce Springsteen, after decades of rockin’ it, still practices diligently and scripts his shows down to almost every line. No wonder he’s still The Boss.)

Anyway, we were way more polished than we’ve ever been, and although we got great questions after the presentations, our shoes–the Altra Instincts–got almost as many inquiries…

The Disneyland Half Marathon: 13.1 Miles in 18 Pictures

Wow. We had such a bippity-boppity-boo ball at the Disneyland Half Marathon this weekend. The biggest thing that went wrong was our plans to run with the 2:15 and 2:30 pace groups went astray for various reasons–I had to take a pit stop, and SBS found some kindred mother runners on the course–so, really, everything was nearly perfect–and as magical as it could be for these mother runners. Because Disney is best seen in visuals instead of words, here is our weekend in 18 pics.

Inspiration + Motivation in 3 Short Minutes

As we get our wings ready to fly in Disneyland, we wanted to remind you, we’ll be at booth 212 at the Expo and speaking at 1 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m. on Saturday.

We realize, though, that we’ll only see a small slice of the AMR community there, so as we head into a long weekend, we wanted to share this video with you.

We’re in the process of creating our marketing materials for 2013–more on that next week–and this is a second draft of a video I created; chances are, many of you will see yourself in it–either specifically, or your mother runner-ness represented. I’ve still got to slice and dice it quite a bit; word on the marketing street is that it can’t be longer than 90 seconds, but we wanted to share all long three minutes of it here…

Follow This Mother!

Kimberly Truesdell, who is training for the Columbus Marathon on Oct. 21, transformed her life when she joined a weight loss program and began running races—she lost a whopping 120 pounds, completing four half-marathons (a fifth is scheduled for Sept. 1, the Indianapolis Women’s Half-Marathon), a 16-mile trail race, “a(n epic) 50K relay,” and a dozen or so 5Ks and 10Ks along the way. Wow, we’re so impressed with your accomplishments, Kimberly! This 31-year-old mom of one—her son Miles is almost 14 months old—is from Fort Wayne, Ind., where she works as an editor for the local newspaper…

Gotta hand it to the gal who designed the sweat-wiping Handana

Hump Day Giveaway: Handana

Dimity and I are heavy sweaters. As in, we perspire profusely when we exercise. Gallons. Buckets. Rivers. I was reminded of this earlier this month, when Dimity and I ran together on Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. At the end of our hour-long outing, she cursed the tech tee she was wearing. “This fabric totally doesn’t work; it’s soaking wet.” I was confounded by what she was talking about. A tech tee that really wicks? What did she expect–to have her sweat evaporate while she was running?

Riiiiiight: Dim lives in the Mile High City where the air is as dry as pasta straight out of the box…
